July 21, 1936, Mari Ginestà, 17, a member of the Juventudes Comunistas (Iberian Communist Youth), stands armed on the roof of the Colón hotel in Barcelona mere days into the Spanish revolution against Franco’s military coup. 
The picture was taken by Juan Guzman (who was born Hans Gutmann in Germany before going to Spain where he photographed the International Brigades).
